Historic Halifax

Halifax County's rich history sets it apart. Several Indian tribes settled the area before the immigrants arrived in Halifax County. This history is celebrated each year at the Pow Wow Festival in Hollister North Carolina.

The Visitor's Center offers an audiovisual presentation, exhibits, guided tours and displays depicting the history of the town.  Several historic structures are open on the site including the Sally Billy House (1808), the Burgess House (1808), the Halifax County Jail (1838), the Tap Room (1760), the Eagle Tavern (1790), the Owens House (1760) and more.  The Montfort House portrays the lifestyle of this wealthy Halifax resident, the first and only Provincial Grand Master Mason of North America.

Halifax is the nation's birthplace of independence.  The historic document "Halifax Resolves" was signed here on April 12, 1776, predating the Declaration of Independence by almost 3 months.  It was the first official action for independence by any colony.  There is an annual Halifax Day Celebration coinciding with this date each year. 
There is also a production of "First for Freedom" put on each year by Eastern Stage Productions.  This outdoor drama depicts the events surrounding signing of the Halifax Resolves, based on a novel of the same name by local author, Max Williams.   

The Annual Fourth of July Celebration, is always held on the Fourth of July. This wonderful event provides entertainment for all ages and draws in approximately 8-10 thousand people a year to this small  town. There is  always lots of  food, fun and family activities.
